Nanga Parbat is the ninth highest mountain in the world and second highest peaks of Pakistan. The Sanskrit word parvata means “mountain rocks” and nanga means “bare”). It is located in Diamir and Astor is a part of Himalayan Range of Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan.
An immense, dramatic peak rising far above its surrounding terrain, Nanga Parbat also notoriously difficult climb. It has three vast faces. The Raikot face is dominated by the north and south silver crags and silver plateau. The Diamir face is rocky in the beginning. It converts itself into ice fields around the higher end of the peak. The Rupal face is the highest precipice in the world.

It was first climbed on July 3, 1953 by Austrian climber Hermann Buhl, a member of a German-Austrian team. By the time of this expedition, 31 people had already died trying to make the first ascent. The final push for the summit was dramatic: Buhl continued alone, after his companions had turned back, and spent a night standing up on the descent. Buhl is the only mountaineer to have made the first ascent of an eight-thousander solo (at least at the summit) and without oxygen.
